Blast from the past!

Mike Hess remembers meeting Don McKay back in the ’80’s.

We meet Don McKay when we were at the gas nationals in Oakland somewhere around 1980. My wife was the ROAR director for then, region 4. Together with some other people we had started a gas car club and it was going fairly well. We told Don we were going to start an electric car club soon after we got back. He said he would contribute a complete electric jerobee car to use as a promo.

Soon we had the jerobee and between heats we would let kids and grown up kids too, from the crowd try their hand at driving. It was a great promotional tool. Thanks Don.
